The location was the only good thing about this motel. The room and sheets didn't feel clean. Bathroom was very old and looked dirty, we didn't use the shower. The motel was very loud and a lot of drunk people were making noise in the middle of the night. We woke up to find trash and dirty towels all over... More

Great view short walk to the boardwalk. Very roomy little kitchen. It was a small hotel area, only a dozen or so but it was quiet and nice area. I would stay there again . Enjoyed my time in Santa Cruz always have. Love the weather here and people are very friendly

Very small room with way too much furniture, Could hardly move around. Frosted and PAD-Locked slider door, so no escape except front door. Smoke detector was missing battery. Stained carpet, mismatched lamps. Thin towels, old soap that fell apart.Just poor!

Took a day trip to San Francisco and ended up heading south to Santa Cruz. Stopped to get a room for the night as this place looked freshly painted and well kept from the outside. Every inch of the office was posted with some rule or another and they demanded a 20$ cash deposit even though they had my credit... More

I was bitten by multiple bed bugs on my first night here, and woke up to blood smears and visible bed bugs on the sheets. The evidence on my body came the next day with itchy welts all over. I informed reception and was given a nearby room for the next night. They have not given any refund for the... More

Just checked out from a 3 night stay that I wish had never happened. I chose to book a larger room with stove, oven and fridge amenities, yet this was a futile decision as there are NO pots, pans, plates, bowls, utensils or cups. I will not accept the 4 plastic cups that they left on top of the fridge.... More

Do not stay here. We were promised a refund on a 20$ cash deposit. No one was in the office at our departure time. This place is a dump. It does not even use fitted sheets and shower water runs all over bathroom floor. Do not stay here.

Without a doubt, Budget Inn Santa Cruz was my worst hotel experience ever. We still do not understand why they rent rooms in the conditions ours were in. The three rooms we visited were definetely unclean and everything except enjoyable. It was revolting to pay this price for the service that we had at this hotel. I would not be... More

I could not find this on Trip Advisor until we were checked in. Big Mistake. First they require $20 cash deposit for the old fashioned "room key". Outside looked good, nice rose garden. When you walk into the tiny lobby it smells of curry seasoned food cooking. The owners took care of us in their pajamas. Yes, this is true.... More

The clue is in the name keep driving. Very tired rooms in need of desperate redecoration, beds uncomfortable with ripped bedding and bathroom poor. Arrived after dark a very bad choice. Only positive was short walk to beach and funfair.
